In A Warrior's Faith, Ryan Job's close friend, Robert Vera, recounts how the highly decorated Navy SEAL's unstoppable sense of humor, positive attitude, and fierce determination helped him survive after being shot in the face by an enemy sniper on a roof in Ramadi, Iraq.
Though blinded, the irrepressible Job recovered from his wounds and began facing a new set of obstacles with his characteristic humor and resolve. He married the girl of his dreams, hunted elk, climbed Mt. Rainier, graduated college with honors, influenced countless people around him, and was looking forward to being a father--before his life was tragically cut short by a hospital medical error.
Vera's raw, often funny, and heartfelt account of his friend's life offers listeners a way to find hope in the middle of life's raging storms.

Not worth it
Ryan Job was a fascinating man with a fascinating story. Unfortunately, in this so-called biography, surprisingly little of it is actually told. As short as this book is, between the author's endless sermonizing, usually reiterating the same few ideas over and over and over again, telling of stories which may or may not be related to Ryan's life and the author's endless speechifying the man himself is being relegated to little more than a walk-on character. We learn very little about his family or upbringing, his training as a Seal or other important milestones in his life. Add to this the authors surprisingly poor understanding and obvious prejudices about blind people and the way they live, and the book makes a rather poor read.
